Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations
Xia Mengyan looked helpless. “Grandpa, don’t be angry. Cousin is now the wife of the president of Gu Corporation. She’s arrogant, so she looks down on us. Your health isn’t good, so don’t be angry. Let’s go home first.”
When the people at the side heard this, they instantly frowned. There were many people in the company, and the news quickly spread throughout the entire company. Mrs. Gu had just taken over the position, yet she did not acknowledge her grandfather anymore? No matter what, he was her grandfather. The old master personally came to the company to look for her, but she refused to see him?
“Is Mrs. Gu so heartless?”
“She’s young, so it’s normal for her to fool around considering how much President Gu dotes on her. However, Mrs. Gu is insensible. Could it be that President Gu doesn’t know what’s going on? He’s actually letting her fool around?”
“I heard that President Gu went to a meeting. It must be because Mrs. Gu doesn’t want to see her relatives, so she instructed the front desk to chase her away.”
Hearing the crowd’s discussion, Xia Mengyan lowered her head and smiled sinisterly. When she looked up again, she frowned and looked troubled. “Grandpa, let’s go. Cousin must be too busy to see us. She’s not looking down on us.”
Xia Cheng snorted. “As an elder, I’ve already come personally, but she’s unwilling to see me. What is she so busy with that she doesn’t even have time to meet me for a few minutes?”
With that, Xia Cheng coughed violently, looking heartbroken.
Xia Mengyan helped him vent his anger and said with a bitter smile, “Grandpa, she’s married to President Gu now and doesn’t care about us anymore. Why are you angry with her?”
“This is too much!” Suddenly, someone could not help but say, “Just because she’s married to the president, she can be arrogant and refuse to see her elders? What’s there for her to be arrogant about?!” At this moment, a young man in a suit walked over. He was not an employee of the company but was here to discuss a collaboration with Gu Corporation. He comforted Xia Mengyan softly, saying, “Miss, don’t be anxious. I’ll help you ask around.”
With that, the man walked toward the front desk, his eyes filled with anger. “Even if she’s the wife of the president, she can’t refuse to meet her elders! The old man came all the way to the company just to see his granddaughter, but she refuses to pay attention to him. Isn’t that too unreasonable?”
After being questioned like this, the receptionist suddenly lost her confidence. “The president said…”
“How could President Gu not want to see his elders? It must clearly be Mrs. Gu’s idea! She’s young and insensible. Don’t you understand? The old man couldn’t contact his granddaughter, so he rushed all the way here. However, you insist on not letting them in. If President Gu blames you, can you bear the responsibility?”
The man turned to look at Xia Mengyan. Seeing her red eyes, his heart softened. “Don’t be sad. The matter will be resolved.”
Xia Mengyan lowered her eyes and smiled bitterly. “Thank you. Actually, I’m already used to it. Xi Xi is wilful, but she’s still very kind. If she finds out that Grandpa dragged his sick body to see her, her heart will definitely soften.”
“You’re welcome. I just can’t stand to see a beauty suffer. I’m an employee of Jiye Corporation. No matter what, I’ll help you to the end today!”
Seeing Xia Mengyan’s aggrieved look and tears, his heart immediately ached. “If Mrs. Gu still doesn’t want to see you, I’ll go upstairs and look for her to reason things out. She actually made her grandfather wait here—”
“Miss Xia, Old Master Xia.” At this moment, a sweet voice interrupted the man’s arrogant words.
Everyone looked in the direction of the voice and saw Qiao Xi slowly walking toward them. Her indifferent gaze swept across the crowd before she finally looked at Xia Mengyan. Before Xia Mengyan could speak, the young man stood up and reprimanded, “Mrs. Gu, your grandfather has been waiting for you downstairs for a long time. You didn’t answer his calls and refused to see him. You even asked the receptionist to chase them away. You’re too much!”
Qiao Xi glanced at the nameplate on the man’s clothes with an indifferent expression. Xia Mengyan was really charming. It had only been a short while, yet someone was already standing up for her.
Xia Mengyan smiled proudly. No matter what her grandfather had done in the past, he was still Qiao Xi’s grandfather. If Qiao Xi did not acknowledge him as her grandfather, she would be unfilial! Even if she held a high position, she would still be despised by the world.
“Xi Xi, you’re married to President Gu now. I can understand that you want to cut ties with us and are unwilling to interact with us, but…” Xia Mengyan looked sad and could not help but sob.
